Video editing follow-up
|September 6, 2013||Posted by johnmjones under Uncategorized|
To follow up on the editing workshop in class on Thursday:
- Although you all can use iMovie on campus computers, Windows users can use Windows Live Movie Maker to edit video on their machines. The program may already be on your computer, but if not, you can downloaded it for free from Microsoft.
- The EPUB specification only allows for two video formats: mp4 and WebM. Any video you wish to include in your book(s) must be in one of these formats.
- Because your ebooks should be self-contained, you must keep an eye on the overall size of the books to make sure they aren’t too large. To that end, if you decide to include videos in your book(s) the length and quality of those videos should be small enough to make downloading easy for your readers.
